In 20 years (maybe sooner) we will have robots that will look and act human. They would first start of looking like the guys from I Robot but then will look like the bots from Almost Human. Do you think we will treat them as object or humans?

Probably not. I can't imagine the amount of controversy or social backlash this would raise, considering how much is already done for trivial matters for actual humans as it is. So, anyone here seen Time of Eve?

I'm sure they would have robot/property rights to protect against vandalism.

I think maybe they will because kids are bound to get attached to the robots and when they grow up they'll push for such laws to be published...

The perfect cycle:

Push technology onto kids, allow them to slowly forget how to play outside or meet physical people. Then we bring in the robots who can be programmed as their best friend/life partner therefor creating preference for robots, they'll marry them and demand rights to do so because talking to other people will be terrifying...then we slowly dwindle in numbers due to no human mating (sure there's test tubes but ehh) until only robots remain. All alone.

That sounded depressing lol

Hey! Wait a minute. Wasn't that the synopsis for a movie?

Yeah. I'll subscribe to this notion. It'll have it's own level of severity. Like stealing a loaf of bread might get you community service and a fine, but grand theft auto will get you a few years in the can.

The costs associated with, not only the super complex mechanical portion of the robot, with it's ultra high tech, very rare, and expensive exotic materials used to build it, and it's undoubtedly super expensive and complex on board computer, and the very likely uber expensive AI software will likely mean that stealing or damaging one of those will be very heavily punished by huge fines and hard prison time.

Remember how they treated horse thieves and cattle rustlers back in the day? Maybe we won't Hang 'em High, but robot vandals, and thieves will feel like they got strung out good.

Don't you mean, nearly every recent futuristic robot-related movie?

The answer is in the question. Robots aren't human so can't have human rights... That being said I can see all too disturbingly well that if robots were to develop to the point that they're almost indistinguishable from humans people would protest for them to have more rights and governments would cave in at the stupid requests.

Most of the people would treat AI's like another human for the first (at least) 10 years since they're going to be put in use because that's how humans are.. But they're also going to be the ones on the completely other side and treat ai's like trash. Probably even after a while there are still going to be some people having feelings for them.
But AI's having rights doesn't really sounds like it's going to happen.
